SOW the Seeds of Love!

SOW the seeds of love – Planting Instructions
Part of the work that we are called to do is to sow the seeds of love in our community and beyond through:

Service to God and the world
One-ness with God and each other
Welcome to neighbor and stranger

We will be reminded of that work and God’s presence in our lives by actually sowing wildflower seeds that were handed out at the annual meeting.

Here’s what to do:
  • Choose a sunny spot and remove existing growth
  • Scatter the seeds evenly and compress into the bare soil (Do not cover)
  • After sprouting, keep seedlings moist until they are about 6-8 inches tall.
  • After that – minimal care is needed.
  • Mow after frost in the fall to scatter more seeds!

The seed packet contains a variety of seeds — some annuals, perennials and biennials designed for our part of the country. Some will not grow until next year!

The Parable of the Sower from Mark 4

Again he began to teach beside the lake. Such a very large crowd gathered around him that he got into a boat on the lake and sat there, while the whole crowd was beside the lake on the land. He began to teach them many things in parables, and in his teaching he said to them:‘Listen! A sower went out to sow. And as he sowed, some seed fell on the path, and the birds came and ate it up. Other seed fell on rocky ground, where it did not have much soil, and it sprang up quickly, since it had no depth of soil. And when the sun rose, it was scorched; and since it had no root, it withered away. Other seed fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up and choked it, and it yielded no grain. Other seed fell into good soil and brought forth grain, growing up and increasing and yielding thirty and sixty and a hundredfold.’ And he said, ‘Let anyone with ears to hear listen!’

Go sow the seeds of love and see what God does!
